YEAR OF RECORDa Sensational Season For Both Trotters and Pacers. - New York, Jan. 10. The light harness horse has done himself credit since the birth of the Twentieth century and the trotting season for 1901 will go down in tbe annals of turf history as one of the greatest in many years. Cresceus' unequaled record is well known throughout the horse world. For a time the great son of Robert Mc Gregor gave hope to those who herald ed him as the two-minute trotter, but Cresceus stopped shy two and a quarter seconds, his best record against the time being 2:024. Although he smashed the previous records to pieces in his first attempt at Father Time, his best performance' was probably In his race against The Abbot, 2:034, at Brighton Beach, which resulted In the downfall of The Abbot and the establishing of a new world's competition record, equaling The Abbot's best time, which stood as the world's best record until eclipsed by Cresceus at Columbus In a trial against time. Cresceus' record during the season was remarkable in many ways. He has captured at least eight records in addi tion to the championship. Other great trotters that shared the public interest were Lord Derby, 2:06, and Thomas Law son's great trotter, Boralma, Peter Sterling, Onward, Silver and Chain Shot. 2:06l4.

Compelled to Pay $3,000 For Wife's Smallpox "Cure. Mexicans Think That He Is an Innocent Man. llanchmau Up From There Tells of His Life. Kansas City, Jan. 10. Jose M. Lugan, a wealthy ranchman of Chihuahua, Mexico, who was at the Baltimore hotel last night, knows Orant G. Gillette, the former Kansas cattle plunger. Inti mately. Mr. Lugan saw Gillette in Chi huahua a few weeks ago. "I was amused when I heard a 'counterfeit' Gillette had been in Kan sas City," said Mr. Lugan last night. "I saw Gillette just before I left Mexico and I do not think he intends to re turn to the United States. He is broken down physically and financially." "Has Gillette any money?" was asked. "I am sure he is almost penniless," was the reply. "He has failed in every business venture he has made in Mex ico. As soon as he arrived in Chihua hua he took charge of a hotel, but was compelled to close it because he could not make expenses. Then he tried to run a dairy, but again failed to make a living. After his two failures his wife was taken ill with smallpox. An Amer ican physician attended her and after her recovery the physician presented Gillette with a billfor $3,000 for profes sional services. Gillette insisted that he did not have the money to pay such an exorbitant bill, but the physician de manded an immediate payment. Gil lette came to me an asked for advice. I told him to ask another physician to make an estimate of what would be fair compensation for the services rendered. Gillette was about to follow my advice when the physician took the matter into court and Gillette lost the suit. He gave up all his personal effects of value ex cept his furniture, which is exempt from seizure in Mexico, and the bill was finally paid. Gillette then cut wild hay and Eold a little. A few months ago he got a1 position as bookkeeper for an American mining company whose mills are about 150 miles from Chihuahua." Mr. Lugan said the residents of Chi huahua sympathize with the former cattle plunger. "The people of Mexico who know Gil lette -believe he is innocent of any crime," said Mr. Lugan. "They think he was the victim of circumstances. But whenever an American comes to Chi huahua he points at Gillette and says: 'There is a thief." " Mr. Lugan and his wife will remain in the city several days before returning to Mexico. A GIFT FOR K. TJ. 1 Elwell, the New York Sculptor, to Present Bust of F. H. Sanborn. Lawrence, Kas., Jan. 10. F. E. Elwell, the New York sculptor, will present to the University of Kansas a plaster cast of a bust of F. B. Sanborn, of Spring field, Mass. Last year Mr. Elwell pre sented the university a bust of Louisa M. Alcott. Mr. Sanborn was in Kansas attending an Associated Charities meet ing last spring and addressed the uni versity students at chapel one day. He was an old acquaintance of Miss Al cott and took a deep interest in Kansas affairs during the border ruffian wars. He was an active abolitionist and a staunch friend of John Brown, of whom he wrote a history. Mr. Sanborn became- so well known on account of his work for abolition that he won the esteem and love of the New England ers who constituted Kansas' anti slavery population. At the same time he won the hate of the pro-slavery fac tion. He had several narrow escapes from death at the hands of mobs. When Kansas university was founded Mr. Sanborn Was -offered the chancellorship, but declined. He is now editor of the Springfield (Mass.) Republican. The presentation Ceremonies last yeav were attended by Mr. Elwell in person, but this year he will not be present. The cast, which will be sent to Mr. Alfred Whitman to be delivered, is taken from the bust made by Mr. El well for the Kansas State Historical society. - - The cast will be placed beside the bust of Miss Alcott in the library building.

Two extraordi nary suits were filed in the district court yesterday by H. E. Michael as attorm-y. Each one is for $1,260 ag-alnst the Kelley & Lyale Milling Co. James H. Owens brings one and E. F. Brown the other. The charge made against the milling com pany is that the two men were discharged without any reason being assigned by the Lyles. Owens alleges he was employed at the mill from July, 1901, to December 7, 1901. On the latter day he wad discharged. Brown says he worked from July 5, 1898. to December 4, VA1, when he was dis charged.

WORE ON THE PRISON Is Progressing Rapidly at Leaven worth These Days. Leavenworth, Kan., Jan. 10. Between four and five hundred prisoners were at work yesterday at the new prison site, the officials taking advantage of the pleasant weather to work every available man. The majority of the prisoners at the site yesterday were engaged in excavating and leveling the ground for the east gate. At this point, inside of the stockade, a large amount of earth must be removed. This is being wheeled outside the stock ade and a wide level driveway is being built up. At present no work is being done on the new buildings, other than preparing the stone and getting it out from the quarry. The laundry building is under roof and practically completed except putting in the floors. One of the new cell houses presents an imposing appear ance, although the work upon it, above ground has not much more than begun. Brick work is up for the first story and the structural iron work is up for two stories higher. All around the building is massive dressed stone for the eaves and cornices, which will require a powerful steam derrick to raise them and put them in place. It is the expectation of the officials to complete this cell house before the next winter, when the prisoners working on the new prison can be kept there and avoid the loss of time required in march ing to and from the present quarters. When the cell house is finished and the men are confined in it the intention is to us part of the laundry building for a dining room until other arrangements have been completed. A punishment building for the confining of refractory prisoners while working at the new site is now almost ready for use. Work on the stone foundation for the consumptive hospital was commenced yes terday and teams were kept busy hauling brick from the new site. HAS NO FRANCHISE. Missouri & Kansas 'Phone Company at Leavenworth. Leavenworth. Jan. 10. The Missouri & Kansas Telephone company is operating in Leavenworth without a franchise.

The fran chise was a 20-year one and was granted at a time when the city had to make many concessions to secure public utili ties. The city is now in a position to ask eome concessions from the company, which will undoubtedly be done. AN ABILENE SHOOTING. T. A. Wilson Recovers Damages in an Odd Case. Abilene, Jan. 10. A peculiar damage suit has been tried for the second time in the district court. A year ago, T. A. Wilson, a- paperhanger, residing on the southern edge of the city, was in a cornfield near his house abdut 8 p. m., searching for a stray horse. A man sud denly approached, shot him in the "legs with a shotgun and fled. Wilson yelled and there was soon a crowd of neigh bors, who carried him to the house. Wilson declared that he recognized as the shooter Samuel Landis, a well-to-do neighbor, who owned the cornfield, and sued him for $5,000 damages. Lan dis claimed an alibi, seeking to prove that he was in town at the time. On the first trial the Jury disagreed, and another lengthy trial has followed. A few days ago Landis' father died and Wilson attached Landis' undivided share in the estate. The case has at tracted general attention owing to the mystery surrounding the shooting. Wilson has recovered only partially, being badly crippled from the. effects of the attack. The Jury returned a verdict late last night for $975 damages for Wilson. MYSTERY IN A DEATH. Brother to a Topeka Girl Under an Assumed Name. Lane, Kas., Jan. 10. There was mys tery in the death of C. H. Hancock, the young man who was killed at the rock quarry near this place a few days ago. Several months ago he was given em ployment at the stone crusher operated for the Missouri Pacific railroad here. He did not associate with the other em ployes and they called him a "dude." He was a young man of refinement. It is not known why he concealed his iden tity, but he was on the pay roll "Cameron." Having saved a small amount of money, he intended to leave the quarry last Saturday. The absence of the foreman made it necessary for him to work Monday in order to get his pay. While working that day he was run over by a car and killed. A letter containing $10 was found in his pocket. The letter was addressed to Keith, in Ottawa, and was signed "C. H. Han cock." Miss Hancock, a clerk employed in the Sttops Warn " Omeda Oil " Six of one are half a dozen of the other." The princi pal difference between pains is the names given by doc tors. The name doesn't amount to anything. If the pain is in the-back the doctors call it one thing, and if it is in the leg they call it another, and yet if they should change those names the pain would hurt just as bad. Omega Oil stops pain. The trouble may be in the neck, shoulders, back, arms, elbows, wrists, hips, legs, knees, ankles or feet. No matter. Omega Oil puts out pain in all parts of the body just as water puts out fire in all parts of a house. It has been tried so often that, there is no longer any doubt about it. Hundreds of thousands of bottles have been used and given satisfaction every where. Omega Oil stops pain, and don't forget it. Smesa Oil is cood lor everything pension office in Topeka, came for the body. She said there was no necessity for her brother working at the quarry He graduated from college recently. His mother lives eight miles from St Joseph, Mo. The undertaker at this place received a letter from Ottawa, Kas., signed "Florence N-," asking that the effects of the dead man be sent to her, as she knew that he would not want his relatives to know the circum stances attending his death. t KILLED THEIR CROPS.
